10 Facts About Me
I grew up in the DC area, on the Maryland side.
I graduated from Barnard College in New York City and have lived here ever since.
I once questioned then-presidential candidate John Edwards about why he supports the death penalty. I wrote about that here.
I have a twin sister, who is a public interest lawyer. She is also my neighbor. Both these things come in handy sometimes.
I have often considered law school.
As of May 2011, I am an associate editor at The Nation Magazine.
I was formerly a writer and editor at AlterNet, where I was in charge of Rights & Liberties and World Special Coverage.
Before that, I worked at The Nation Institute.
